In honor of the new digs here and the champs who put this into place, I wanted to offer a fringe perspective that was surprisingly solidified during numerous conversations with sponsors, officials, and coaches I spoke with during the recent Olympic games in Peyongchang about this game.
I’m also being a bit audacious here, and am considering starting a theme to post under around here called: Smash’s Corner.
So any posts from me with that prefix, will be exclusively focused on eSport/competitive player techniques strictly for the physical aspects of playing and improving in the game.
Don’t worry tho, because this wouldn’t be a UI critique. Instead, it’s about how you can/could physically play the game. So things like where you hold your hands, how you tap, tapping tactics, how you position your device, optimal angles, optimal muscle groups, muscular fatigue, physical conditioning, mental conditioning, room lighting, concentration techniques, tilt reduction techniques etc. are all possible and tasty topics.
But before I go ahead and fully write the first article, “The Body & the Game” for you all, I figured it’d be more polite to ask if you’d have any interest in reading stuff like this in this teaser post!
So let meh kno! If you all would like this sort of content, I can have the first article done by the end of the week.
Ps - many thanks to all of the supporters of this site and setup.
